elite who have done so much harm to the people of north korea. we must go after kim jong un's illicit activities like we went of after organized crime in the united states; identify the network, interdict shipments and disrupt the flow of money. this would sever a key subsidy for north korea's weapons of mass destruction program. for only when the north korean leadership realizes that its criminal activities are untenable do prospects for peace and security in northeast asia improve. i will now turn to our ranking member, eliot engel of new york, for his opening comments. >> well, thank you very much, mr. chairman, and i'd like to thank you for calling this timely hearing and for your leadership in addressing the north korean threat. i would also like to say publicly that it was a privilege to travel to the region with you earlier this year to discuss north korea, with top leaders in seoul, tokyo and beijing. the recent nuclear test conducted by the north was a dangerous provocation that raised tensions in northeast asia. it reinforces the fact that pyongyang poses a serious threat to

leader anymore, kim jong-un. he has been in for what about a year now? >> yeah. after his father died. apparently the relationship between china and north korea has been described as like lips and teeth. that is the phrase the chinese use but the chinese for years have been trying to get the north koreans to behave basically. they brought kim jong-il on numerous trips to parts of china. they show him factories. tell him, this is how you need to reform your economy and i think the chinese perspective the north koreans haven't listened an they're condition standly issue these provocations which frankly isn't good for business and the business of china right now is business. >> host: taking your calls on this segment on north korea and a variety of other foreign policy issues. cass up first from grand junction colorado, on the democratic line. >> caller: thank you for taking my call. i've been an obama fan for a very long time and i voted for him but i'm very pleased what he did. no one does everything exactly right, when you're fighting your own country as well as having to fight f

-- the reason i -- i think kim jong-uns of the world are dinosaurs. they're dying because these harsh dictatorships from orwell's 1984 are not delivering. the reason this is not a viable system is because 30% of the people are starving. so the more they can squeeze people in political ideology and the special space but they can't see that. same like that in iran. the roads are bad in iran. the country has a lot of oil and it into should be spread out but the roads are bad. so the common people have a little political space to build a movement about the tangible bread and butter issue. the whole arab spring was started bay vendor setting himself on fire because he couldn't sell food, and because his dignity was destroyed by being beaten bay fee money police ma'am, but the whole thing started as bread and butter issues. you mobilize people. but when you start bread and butter issue protest and the country have 25% of the people unemployed, then you can grow numbers tremendously fast, once you grow numbers you become a movement, and once you become a movement, you can try to change
